Does anyone know what temp., cook time,or if any liquid is needed to cook Kale in an electric digital pressure cooker? My mother always did it in a stove top style.

You always need a liquid in any pressure cooker to make the steam------which is how the food is cooked..........I would probably use chicken broth and cook for 2-5 minutes on high, and quick release, and check to see if it is how you like it...........{#emotions_dlg.biggrin} Here is a chart for veggies for you to go by..............

I wouldn't cook kale in a pressure cooker. It cooks down so fast in a large skillet or pot on the stove. It wouldn't be worth the time, IMO.

now I've made kale a few times in a pressure cooker and the results have been fantastic. I can't advise as to a ratio but here's what I have done - I have "thrown in" quite a lot of fresh kale from a huge bag, maybe 3 large handfuls or so. Then I've added maybe a cup of water (no more than that) and cooked on high pressure for 5-6 minutes, then turned it off and let pressure release naturaly for about 10 minutes. It's true you're not necessarily saving time; but I think you are saving nutrients to use the pc.

I've cooked collards the same way and they've been great too
